Two women, both destined to be revered as saints; but how very different in character, opinions and life-style is lucidly conveyed in this exceptional double biography, long accepted as a classic of its kind. The eagle is Saint Teresa of Avila, the national saint of Spain, a woman of beauty, breeding and culture to whom the very idea of becoming a nun was at first repugnant. The dove is Saint Therese of Lieux, the most gently remarkable of saints, a young French bourgeoisie who spent her life in total obscurity as a nun and died of tuberculosis at the age of twenty-four.

(Key Words: Biography, Saint Teresa of Avila, Saint Therese of Lisieux, V. Sackville-West, Rioman Catholicism, Saints, Nuns).
